In many other cultures, it is commonplace to retreat from everyday life for a prescribed time and get in touch with the aspect of ourselves that is not goal-directed and time-oriented, is not concerned with gaining or losing, but is boundless and infinite. I call this aspect The One Who Is Not Busy.

Darlene Cohen in Finding a Joyful Life in the Heart of Pain by Darlene Cohen


To Practice This Thought:
Hang out for a while with the One Who Is Not Busy and see what it feels like.
